    Pros

    everyone is always ready to help with any problem.
    the seniors are willing to not only explain how to do anything but also be involved with the employee at the same, including people from other teams.
    rarely saw anyone working late.
    flexible timings.
    office celebrations for birthdays and others.
    great in-house training

    Cons

    Complex business domain- but the training handles that
    Can be a High Intensity fast-paced environment

    I worked at Information Mosaic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of well defined processes for a company of it's size - which is properly organised these days.
    The people working there are very good & there is a nice culture
    Central location
    Descent holiday allowance & benefits package
    Great opportunities to learn & develop your career experience

    Cons

    The company has gone through a lot of ups & downs & seen a lot of staff leave over the past few years - something which should hopefully be behind it now.

    Former Employee - Product Engineer  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Former Employee - Product Engineer in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    I worked at Information Mosaic as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    ample work, great exposure to various phases of the project development. if the person has the attittude to learn then there is so much to learn. no free time or sitting idle time for the employee even at the senior management level. IM is a good pay master(atleast i was happy with the salary :) ) infrastructure is good as per its size. also timely comp offs granted with ease. And the domain is good, in fact new of its kind in market

    Cons

    lot of work to do, the work at hand never ends. no work life balance. extra working hours or working on weekends is a routine. Senior management is always not happy with your performance and makes big issues out of little mistakes. no onsite oppurtunity. Blame game too high for junior level and mid level employees. makes a hype out of every tiny issue

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should look at the way the employee performs and not direclty go by the feedback of others. Also personal and professonal issues should be kept separate and dealt with separately.

  6.  

    Good place to learn. However, poor senior management, bad communication and zero innovation.

    Former Employee - Development in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Information Mosaic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. The company will help you grow your career path.
    2. You will be given alot of responsibility, sometimes outside of your core role, enabling you to learn new skills / competencies.
    3. You will make alot of friends as the social side of the company is great.
    4. Quite flexible / accommodating working hours.
    5. Good benefits (healthcare, pension, bike to work scheme, laptop, phone (if your role demands it)
    6. Central office location.
    7. Opportunity to travel to client sites all over the world.
    8. The business and technical knowledge throughout the company is strong and you can learn alot.

    Cons

    1. Non-competitive salaries. Unless you are top level management, or a long-term employee, you will not be paid well compared to the rest of the market.
    2. No bonus structure. No accountability for bad work. This has resulted in a less motivated workforce.
    3. Objectives, one to one manager involvement, salary reviews & promotions are dis-organised, inconsistent and generally haphazard.
    4. Very little innovation & creativity with respect to software development. There is no R&D. Development culture is reactive and unmotivated rather than pro-active and enthusiastic.
    5. Senior Management proved to be a resistant and destructive with respect to some decisions (e.g. HR initiatives, marketing, UX re-design) while reckless and naive with others (e.g. financials, scaling the business too aggressively, communicating to employees).
    6. The business model is flawed. There is too much work for too little employees and not enough revenue.
    7. Many resources and functions within the business have been migrated to a newer office in India. While this has helped with short-term needs such as reduced cost, increased business knowledge and APAC market coverage, the effects have proved more negative long-term. Product quality, team collaboration and overall company morale have declined.
    8. Taking advantage of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Stop re-shuffling and re-using the same management team when things need to change. Remove and replace.
    2. Get further financial investment.
    3. Implement proper people management and rewards structure in an effort to improve employee attrition rate, morale & motivation.
    4. Development culture needs to change. Be innovative and don't resist change.
    5. Re-factor the core platform.
    6. Concentrate on deals that are winnable, projects that are profitable and requirements that are within the products sweet-spot.

    Former Employee - Developer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Information Mosaic full-time

    Pros

    A lot of very good people on staff that are highly motivated
    Some excellent domain knowledge within the company.
    Dublin office centrally located.
    A low stress environment to work in with a good work life balance and good raport (craic) within the office.
    Competitive pay and package (when they are honouring the pensions! )
    Interesting and engaging work.

    Cons

    A rush to reduce costs by offshoring everything has resulted in poor moral, deteriorating code quality and conflicts of interests between locations
    No future if in the dublin office (new mgmt team seem content to continue the previous team's contention that cheaper is better).
    Seem prepared to let good people move on and in no rush to replace those who leave (in dublin anyway).

    Once upon a time this would have been a company that enforced best practice in software development, challenged existing practices where they thought weaknesses existed and embraced change when necessary to make its software better...this culture has fallen into decline in recent times.
